Late evening of March 19 or early morning on the 20th, depending on what time zone you are in marked the New Moon in Pisces in the Northern Hemisphere. The Moon joined the Sun 1 degree of Pisces and at the very same time, Venus was at the final degrees of Pisces before moving into Aries. Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac and embodies the wisdom of all the other signs preceding it. So this lunar cycle ends the zodiac calendar year and is a time of endings and preparing for new beginnings.
The New Moon in Pisces should include setting intentions of planting seeds of belief in the wisdom gained in the past year to carry you into the new beginnings. It should empower you moving forward with the grace and understanding required to accept what the future presents in a manner that is true to your heart and for the good of all. Knowing that you will know what is true and have the courage to act in accordance to that truth. We are on the verge of several powerful energetic shifts this year with the first happening mid-March when Pluto moves into Aquarius and Saturn will enter Pisces. It is unclear what these shifts will create, but astrologers believe we are going to begin drastic changes in our world over the next 2 years. Pluto is significant transformation, death and rebirth. Aquarius is the sign of progress and embodies technology. Together they have the ability to transform humanity. Saturn in Pisces is rules, regulations, structure vs. no boundaries, mysticism, deep feelings. It is worth it to more read about the history of these past meetings to understand the tendencies of the next 2 years. Therefore it is important in this New Moon to use the magic of Pisces to plant the seeds now to prepare ourselves moving forward. It will assist us to be ready in a knowing kind of way that keeps us out of fear of the new and unknown with the courage to trust our wisdom moving forward. And to always remember that the collective consciousness is powerful in how we solve the challenges ahead. We each can be a responsible power to ignite our outcomes by how we believe, trust, respond and act. Remember we are all connected through the same consciousness and we create our reality by what we put forth into the universe. A daily prayer for love, healing, peace and justice could go far these days.
Dr. Michael Lennox describes Pisces as the owner of the unconscious and all the power that comes from the infinite field of possibility from which all form springs. Pisces is about love and forgiveness and is ruled by Neptune, the planet known as the Great Spirit. So while Pisces is connected to all things it is also empowered by the mystical spirit at the same time. He also describes the influence of Venus in the final stages of Pisces this New Moon to be powerful. Venus wants love and in Pisces, there is no boundaries for that love. In the final degrees of a sign, Venus is sitting in all the wisdom of the sign of Pisces who represents all signs of the zodiac. So a very powerful time to heal, give and receive love. The world can use a lot of love right now, so another good idea is to set an intention moving forward to embody the wisdom of love in your actions moving forward as Venus moves into Aries hours after meeting the Sun & Moon this new Moon. In Aries, Venus is not comfortable with this Fire of this sign and we need to send her off with a good intention moving forward as it has potential to be a heightened emotional time in this lunar cycle with her in Aries the entire time.
The Pisces traits include being compassionate, romantic, artistic, intensely empathic and sensitive. They feel very deeply and at times struggle with the blues & can be prone to addictions because of it. It is hard for others at times to understand the Pisces person because of the depth of their feelings and their innate psychic abilities. They are the healer you will find at the exact right time without the fear of judgement. They are attuned to the true, deep rooted identity, subconscious, spiritual side and deepest wounds we are each meant to deal with in this lifetime. The Pisces can be a magical influence and with this New Moon we can optimize that magic by setting an intention to commit to some level of spiritual practice to empower ourselves. Meditation is a powerful tool, journaling, paying attention to your dreams, etc. All powerful tools to learn and hear from spirit to advance your growth and knowing at this time. Some of the shadows of the Pisces are dreaminess, the open accepting with lack of boundaries which can cause overwhelm, can be a sponge of the emotional energy around them, they can throw themselves into helping others at all costs, indecisiveness because of the innate flow to trust and if unbalanced, move blindly guided mostly by intuition rather than intellect; depression & addictions.The Pisces can, so to speak, unconsciously pick the scab off a deep wound in another while coming from their heart and sense of caring without conscious ill intent which usually results in a mishap.
Let’s see what the cards say we need to know to empower love as we move forward during a fiery emotional time of change into the unknown? The card I drew is from the Oracle of the 7 Energies by Collette Baron-Reid, “Divine Matrix”. The key concepts of this card from the book read: the realm of Spirit, the knowledge that we are all Divine beings, part of a tapestry, weaving our dreams into the fabric of reality; synchronicity, learning to trust the way things unfold. The book goes on to say, you are surrounded by a multitude of realities that were brought to life by others. These can surely affect you if you allow them to. But as your thread your luminous life force, your courageous dream is part of life, you’re being invited to be conscious of the pattern you are weaving. I say – I often hear people say, “I am not sure if this is what I am supposed to do, or feel that when something happens that takes a turn in their lives for the worse they have no control over it because at the time it is new and not fully understood. They confuse the signs presented to us by spirit or God as something they must just accept as though they have no choice. They let the confusion created by the message lead them into thinking they are supposed to do something they are unsure of and enter it blindly. Confusion means there is more to understand, or possibly the timing is not quite right. It can mean the message is meant to inspire you to understand more before accepting or acting. We are each powerful beings and the truth of your destiny lives in your heart no matter what the world presents to you at any given time. When you are feeling powerless in any dark time in your life it is because you are in an unknowing state. You are disconnected to your truth because your reality has shifted in some way or you are in a weakened state. You are the driver of your destiny and you empower those around you when you are following the truth in your heart. When you are in the powerless state of unknowing it is the time to plant the seed of believing you have the wisdom to see what it is you need to know for your next right action. To begin to dream of what you want and see the opportunities that will be created as a result of it. Each time you receive a gift of opportunity, let go of the wonder and turn within to your heart to feel whether it is true or not. Is it what you have dreamt of or is it a message to help you fine tune what your true dream is moving forward? The exact form may be something you had not quite grasped in your intentions. But resonate with it to see if it identifies with your motivations and talents. Only you know the truth of what lives in your heart, the purpose you came into this lifetime to live by knowing your interests, inclinations and talents. Stay on course for it will be for the good of all. Fear has no place in guiding you forward, only what you know is true in your heart and is rightful for the good off all. Sometimes action is just saying a daily prayer, creating a loving vision for the world, using the tools you have at the time to move forward is the start to fulfilling your truth and living without fear. It is necessary to empower the world around you to find resolve and create the opportunities that align with your truth.
Peace and Love, Susan
